Warhammer Chaosbane is a Diablo-esque ARPG with a ton of loot, enemies, skills and bosses. It has an immensely fun moment-to-moment combat loop, be it playing solo or with friends. The combat is chaotic, the loot is rewarding, and everything scales up nicely with the difficulty. The story is skippable, and so is most of the voice acting, but you’re here to click for blood, and the clickin’s good! The game also looks nice, specially with lot of enemies and skills at play on screen.
Fun boss battles
